Time and time again, we YoYoers have been generous enough to share our YoYos and time and time again we come to find that having them try our YoYos wasn’t as fun as we first envisioned as soon as they dent the YoYo on the floor, from a lack of experience and/or bad string-length perception
The point of this thread is to share stories of all the times you thought it was a good idea to have your next door neighbor, Billy try your new shiny YoYo.
I’ll start: I was hanging out with my Dad and yoyoing. He remembered how much fun he had yoyoing back in the day and wanted to give it a shot, not being aware of the fact that this yoyo is bi-metal he goes ahead in gives it a nice hard smack into the floor… My YoYo has never been the same since sniff
Another time was when I was with my brother and he decided it was a good idea to try my YoYo because he thought that it was the same kind of yoyo he had when he was younger. He threw it down and nothing happened, not knowing that you must bind to bring it back, even though I told him in the past you HAVE TO BIND TO BRING IT BACK, he went on throwing it even harder to get it to come back to his hand and thus smacks it straight onto the hardwood floors… This both happened on the same day and since then, a peace of me has died…
Enough of my ranting, let the stories begin!
